In addition to the chance to nab Assassin's Creed 2 for totally free, for the next two weeks at least, Xbox Live is also having a sale that covers a host of Capcom's offerings.
The entire rundown can be found over at Capcom Unity, though we have some recommendations:
- "Super Street Fighter IV AE" is going for just $14.99, which is definitely a great deal. And don't forget, with the Ultra updated on the way, here's a chance to get the base game if you haven't done so already.
- "Asura's Wrath," which is essentially an entire season of an over the top anime about gods who kick the crap out of each other is also one of last year's most criminally underplayed games, despite being a critical darling. It's going for just $9.99.
- The brilliant revival of the Blue Bomber, "Mega Man 9," and the not as awesome but still okay follow-up, "Mega Man 10," are available for just 400 MSP each.
- The 360 port of arguably the greatest "Street Fighter" game ever made, "Third Strike Online Edition," can be nabbed for an insanely low amount of 300 MSP. That's $3.75 in non-Microsoft moon money, BTW.

Not even a West Coast heat wave last Saturday could drive away Capcom faithful from an afternoon of monster hunting. A lot of credit for the fan turnout goes to the very hands-on and approachable Capcom-Unity group, who organized an agenda-packed day with a live-stream tournament, a raffle, and every opportunity to play with Monster Hunter fans of every skill level. We took these pics as the event was winding down, though as you can see, hardly anyone wanted to leave.
Most gamers in the West have likely never heard of 2005's "Namco X Capcom," a tactical RPG developed by Monolith Soft for the PlayStation 2 that was only released in Japan. That game brought together characters from various Capcom and Namco games, ranging from "Ghosts N Goblins" to "Tekken," to combat the forces of evil. The game was never localized, and seemingly faded into obscurity as a quirky one-off that U.S. gamers would never get to experience. Fortunately for curious fans, the follow-up to "Namco X Capcom," "Project X Zone," has made its way to the States, complete with an expanded roster of publishers contributing characters.

For as much as the 'Monster Hunter' franchise looks and feels like your typical action-driven multiplayer online game, Capcom's U.S. publishing side is very cognizant of the series' often under-appreciated combat depth. Even as far back as 2009, Capcom's held 'Monster Hunter' community events scholastically themed on further 'Monster Hunter' education. Their latest one happens to be this Saturday, June 29, which also happens to be at Capcom's U.S. office in San Mateo, California, less than 30 minutes away from San Francisco (in good traffic).
